Governor Baker issued his vetoes and amendments to the FY 2017 budget last week and there are several areas of concern for working families. We need your help to ensure this year’s state budget doesn’t raise costs on public sector workers and retirees. Please click here to contact your State Representative and urge them to override the Governor’s vetoes on three major issues:
- The Governor’s attempt to raise GIC premium splits to 25% for all active state employees.
- A veto of language that would protect municipal retirees from premium split increases up to 50%
- The Governor’s amendment to limit the accrual of earned sick time for state workers.
